EU says its relationship with the UK will never be the same post-Brexit

EU says its relationship with the UK will never be the same post-Brexit

Ursula von der Leyen, president of the European Commission, left, and Michel Barnier, chief negotiator for the European Union (EU), arrive ahead of von der Leyen’s a speech at the London School of Economics in London, U.K., on Wednesday, Jan. 8, 2020.

LONDON — The EU is ready to negotiate a zero-tariff trade deal with the United Kingdom but the relationship between the two sides will never be the same, the European Commission President said Wednesday at an event in London.

“The truth is that our partnership cannot and will not be the same as before. And it cannot and will not be as close as before, because with every choice comes a consequence,” Ursula von der Leyen, who took over the presidency of the EU’s executive arm in December, said at the London School of Economics.

The U.K. is scheduled to leave the European Union in 23 days, on January 31 — becoming the first member state to do so. This will kickstart a transition period, when London and Brussels will engage in new negotiations that will include future trade arrangements. However, both sides have been at odds over the length of that next phase.

“The European Union is ready to negotiate a truly ambitious and comprehensive new partnership with the United Kingdom,” von der Leyen said. However, she warned that “without an extension of the transition period beyond 2020, you cannot expect to agree on every single aspect of our new partnership.”

“The transition time is very, very tight,” she said, adding there’s a maximum 10 months to negotiate new trade arrangements, so these can be ratified before December.

U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson has pushed legislation to force trade talks with the European Union to end by no later than December. Johnson has made it clear that he is seeking an “ambitious” free trade arrangement with the EU, similar to a deal Europe negotiated with Canada — the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA). That deal took seven years to negotiate and has yet to be fully ratified by national parliaments in Europe.

If there is no trade agreement between the U.K. and the EU, businesses could find themselves trading on World Trade Organization terms – potentially meaning higher tariffs and barriers to commerce. This possibility is often described as a “no-deal” or “cliff-edge” Brexit.

One cruise, 8 months, 111 ports of call. Yes, there is actually such a thing

Eight months on a cruise ship — could you do it? For some, it’s an unimaginably long time at sea, while for others continuous cruising has become a way of life. For well-off and time-rich travelers, there’s a hunger not only for expeditions to novel, remote and less-accessible destinations, but also a growing interest in super-long world cruises that can last the better part of a year. Take the Viking Sun’s Ultimate World Cruise. Now well into its Guinness Record-breaking endeavor — to complete the world’s longest continuous cruise — the ship departed on a round-trip journey from London on August 31 of last year.

Just 54 of her guests are “world cruisers,” each paying just more than $90,000 to visit 111 ports in 51 countries across six continents in the span of 245 days. The rest are doing one of two segments: 127 days from London to Los Angeles, or 119 days from Los Angeles back to London.

Around the World in 245 Days

A round trip on the Ultimate World Cruise starts and finishes in London, England. The ship visits various U.K. and Scandinavian ports before heading west to Canada; from there it circumnavigates South America (with further stops in the Caribbean and Costa Rica) before docking in California.

Then it’s on to French Polynesia and New Zealand, Australia and Asia, with the remaining weeks spent exploring the Middle East and the Mediterranean, before ending in London where it all began.

Why did Viking do this?

Viking’s first World Cruise launched in 2017. The cruise spanned 141 days and visited 35 countries. “We received resounding feedback from guests on our first sold-out World Cruise in 2017 that they were interested in spending more time with us,” said Viking marketing executive Richard Marnell. He noted that a “good number” of guests on Viking’s first World Cruise also booked on the latest, much longer cruise.

He added that the Ultimate World Cruise itinerary “was developed with feedback from our guests who desire to experience the cultures of the world in-depth, over an extended period of time, while sailing onboard a ship that was designed for discovery, with all the comforts of home.” However, one person’s idea of home comforts may be wildly different from the next. Someone who fancies a floating family vacation with young children in tow, gaudy umbrella-topped cocktails, or nightly flutters at a casino should not choose Viking.

Tranquility rules on Viking ships. Apart from the captain’s noon-day message, PA announcements are a rarity, and melodious birdsong plays in all the restrooms.

What to expect

Cruising is one of the fastest-growing segments of the travel market — and one of the most fiercely competitive. Viking has a savvy approach. Instead of trying to be all things to all people, it focuses on a very specific target market: experienced travelers, aged 50 and older.

It seems that Viking launched its Ocean Division in 2015 with the goal of reinventing the small-midsized ship category. According to Viking’s Chairman Torstein Hagen, his ships offer “the thinking person’s cruise,” not “the drinking person’s cruise.” The Basel, Switzerland-based company drew upon two highly successful decades in river cruising to decide what the Viking difference would be, and here it is in a nutshell: No casinos

No guests under the age of 18

No formal dress nights

No surcharges for specialty restaurants So much for exclusions. What needs to be included in order to keep 930 well-heeled passengers happy, healthy and contented for four or eight months at a stretch? For starters, there is free Wi-Fi and the LivNordic Spa’s state-of-the-art thermal suite is open to all guests at no extra charge. There’s also a well-equipped gym and morning sessions of Pilates, yoga or tai chi at the poolside. Immaculately fresh salads, fruit and vegetables form part of the excellent cuisine in all the restaurants. In case this all sounds too virtuous, be assured that complimentary beer and wine flow during lunch and dinner service.

All about the destinations

On the cerebral side, Viking cruises are “designed for discerning travelers” with an interest in art, cuisine, history, science, culture and exploration. Itineraries are aimed at attracting this type of traveler, and a destination-focused approach underlies all activities.

“For more than 20 years we have been committed to connecting travelers to culturally immersive experiences that allow them to explore the world in comfort,” said Hagen. To this end, one included tour is available at every port — some better than others, it must be said — in addition to a variety of payable excursions. As a result, almost every passenger goes ashore. Guest lecturers on various topics provide plenty of cultural enrichment, too.

What cruise aficionados say

Meet Canadian veteran cruisers Barry and Ilene Cole. While they were working, the Coles did cruises of seven to 14 days; now they choose cruises ranging from 14 to 30 days. They do about five cruises a year — their favorite lines being Regent, Crystal, Silver Seas and Seabourn — and will complete their 100th cruise in 2020.

The cruise stops at world famous destinations as well as lesser-known spots, such as Ushuaia, Argentina. Sandra Kreuzinger

Boris Johnson to push for a speedy trade deal in new Brexit talks with EU

Disagreement over Brexit trade talks will likely come to a head in London Wednesday with U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson due to meet with the president of the European Commission.

Britain is set to become the first country ever to exit the EU in 24 days — on January 31. This will kickstart a transition period, when London and Brussels will engage in new negotiations that will include future trade arrangements. However, both sides seem to disagree about the timeline for these talks.

Johnson has pushed for legislation to force trade talks with the European Union to end by no later than December. However, European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen has said that 11 months to put a trade deal together is an “extremely challenging” timeline.

“The meeting is really to discuss holistically the U.K.’s withdrawal from the European Union and to look forward to the year ahead in all of its dimensions,” a spokesperson for the Commission said Monday.

The same spokesperson added that von der Leyen’s views “are very clear.”

Boris Johnson's Brexit bill set to be passed through UK Parliament

Britain’s Prime Minister Boris Johnson reacts as he is greeted by staff, arriving back at Downing Street, after meeting Queen Elizabeth and accepting her invitation to form a new government, in London, Britain December 13, 2019.

U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson will test out his new parliamentary majority on Friday by putting his Brexit bill to a new vote in the House of Commons.

Lawmakers agreed to the bill in principle in October but rejected a short timeframe to ratify it, which ultimately led to last week’s general election. The public vote gave Johnson a huge 80-seat majority in the lower chamber of Parliament and effectively broke the deadlock that has plagued British politics in recent years.

The “second reading” of the bill on Friday will be followed by a vote at around 3:00 p.m. London time and it would then require further debate in both chambers early next year. If passed into law, it would mean that the U.K. would leave the EU on January 31, three-and-a-half years after the 2016 referendum.

Changes to the bill from October are seen as controversial by many. The new bill would outlaw any extension to the U.K.’s transition period which is set to run until December 31, 2020. This would tighten the gap that Britain has to agree a trade deal with the EU — increasing the chances of a no-deal Brexit.

'The Rise of Skywalker' star Daisy Ridley was pouring beer for 'minimum wage' when she landed 'Star Wars'

In a span of less than five years, Daisy Ridley has gone from pouring beers for minimum wage to wielding a lightsaber for a multibillion-dollar movie franchise.

The British actress stars as Rey in Disney’s new “Star Wars” trilogy, which finishes on Friday with the release of the third installment, “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.” But when she first landed that life-changing role roughly five years ago, Ridley was still working in a pub in London making under $10 an hour.

“Not to float my own boat, but I’m a really good bartender, because I worked in two different pubs for, like a year-and-a-half, in a rowdy London district,” Ridley told Jimmy Fallon on NBC’s “The Tonight Show” in November 2017.

The 27-year-old actress added that she worked behind the bar at the London pubs in her early 20s, only stopping around the time she landed her breakout role ahead of 2015’s “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.” When Ridley was announced as the star of that film, in April 2014, she had previously only landed small roles in short films and U.K. television shows like “Casualty” and “Mr. Selfridge.”

Aside from landing the occasional small acting role, at the time Ridley was getting by making “minimum wage” as a bartender, she told The New York Times in 2015. In 2014, the minimum wage in the U.K. for workers over the age of 21 was £6.50 (about $8.50) per hour, according to the British Government.

Ridley, who attended a high school for performing arts north of London, also told The New York Times how she had struggled for a few years after high school while trying to break into an acting career.

Ola announced in November that it was to enter the London market, revealing the strategy just days after rival Uber was stripped of its London license. Uber continues to operate in London under appeal.

Ola claims to be one of the world’s biggest ride-hailing companies with operations extending across more than 250 cities across India, U.K., Australia and New Zealand.

The company has not announced an official launch date but one source told CNBC last month that Ola may attempt a full roll in mid-January next year.

A source, who preferred to remain anonymous due to the information not yet being public, told CNBC that Ola may look to soft launch in London in December, with a full roll out due in mid-January 2020.

As the world wakes up to the news of a landslide victory for the ruling Conservative Party in the U.K.’s general election, CNBC takes a look at frontpage reaction from newspapers across the globe.

‘Carrie on Boris – Tory landslide … and Corbyn’s on his bike’ – The Sun

British tabloid The Sun pictured a “jubilant” Prime Minister Boris Johnson and his partner Carrie Symonds arriving in his west London constituency of Uxbridge this morning. It also referred to the “disaster” defeat suffered by Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, who announced plans to step down.

‘Rejoice! Boris surges to landslide win’ – The Daily Mail

Another of the U.K.’s newspapers, The Daily Mail, showed Johnson on a “victory march” as the “Tories storm the North” and the Labour party’s “Red Wall falls,” referring to seats in the north of England and the Midlands which had traditionally voted for the leftist opposition. The Mail said voters delivered a “humiliating verdict on Jeremy Corbyn’s brand of socialism.”

‘Johnson unleashed’ – The i paper

The i paper described the Conservative’s victory as a “blue tide” sweeping the U.K. and how the leader of the Liberal Democrats, Jo Swinson, lost her seat in a “bleak night” for the centrist party.

‘Labour in meltdown as Johnson seizes majority’ – The Guardian

Left-leaning paper The Guardian said Johnson was “triumphant after trouncing Labour with (its) pro-Brexit strategy” and that both of the major parties were “stunned” by the exit poll last night, suggesting a “decisive majority” for the Conservatives.

‘Johnson’s historic victory’ – The Telegraph

Meanwhile, pro-Conservative paper The Telegraph, which once counted Johnson as a columnist, highlighted that the ruling party was set for its “biggest success since (Margaret) Thatcher”, who won a landslide vote in 1987.

‘Europa bye-bye’ – la Repubblica

Italy’s la Repubblica went for a snappy headline in response to the Conservative victory, alluding to the fact that the Conservatives “absolute majority” means “the path for London seems clear: Brexit will happen on the January 31 2020,” according to a translation.

‘Los sondeos apuntan a una mayoría rotunda de Johnson’ – El País

“Polls point to a resounding majority for Johnson,” was the translated headline from Spain’s El País, mentioning that this looked to be worst result for the Labour party since 1935.

Boris Johnson after election triumph: ‘I urge everyone to find closure and let the healing begin’

Boris Johnson after election triumph: 'I urge everyone to find closure and let the healing begin'

Prime Minister Boris Johnson leaves Downing Street for Buckingham Palace where he will seek permission to form the next government during an audience with Queen Elizabeth II at Downing Street on December 13, 2019 in London, England.

Conservative Party leader Boris Johnson promised unity on Friday, shortly after securing a five-year term in office with a stronger-than-expected parliamentary majority.

Speaking outside Downing Street, the newly-elected prime minister said the country would build a new partnership with the EU and called on Britons to move passed the deep divisions of the last few years.

“I urge everyone to find closure and let the healing begin,” he said.

“We are going to unite and level up … bringing together the whole of this incredible United Kingdom — England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland together, taking us forward, unleashing the potential of the whole country, delivering opportunity across the entire nation,” he added.

With all the results declared on Friday, the Conservatives secured 365 parliamentary seats — a majority of 80 in the House of Commons.

Johnson’s victory is likely to pave the way for the world’s fifth-largest economy to leave the European Union by the end of next month.

It bookends more than three-and-a-half years of political wrangling after a small but clear majority voted to leave the bloc in June 2016.

At around 3 p.m. London time, sterling traded at $1.3324, up around 1.2%.
